FRINGE IS IN…

There is a little trend going around and I am loving every ounce of it. Fringe seems to be the hottest thing right now whether it be for fashionable attire or breath taking interiors. Normally when you hear about fringe on furniture, you think of your grandmother’s antique sofa (which I am sure is stunner!); but fringe is taking a new spin on furniture that is both current and clean. I know you’re wondering; how in the world does fringe have a current use on furniture Chase? If you can’t take my word for it, just scroll down!

Fringe is a classic that has been around for all 26 years of my life (and longer I’m sure lol!). I am excited to see it take a new life on furniture. Don’t you?

Pendant lights continue to grow with versatility providing multiple design and use options. Whether you are using single pendants center-lined along the kitchen island or a cluster of pendants at different lengths to create a dramatic focal point in the family room, your pendant choice should be one that can stand alone and demand attention in the room. Now a great deal of thought should go into choosing the perfect pendant to ensure that the light works well with the design of the room. To make the decision making a little easier for you, I’ve decided to share my Top 5 favorite Pendants below!

“Hello Fall”

I absolutely love this time of year! Fall (along with winter, but we’ll save winter for later) is all about entertaining family and friends with great parties and dinners. Whether your friends are just stopping over to converse, you are planning a Halloween party for the kiddos, or having the entire family over for Thanksgiving dinner; your home should be stocked and ready to go with items that make entertaining a breeze.  If you’re looking for an affordable one stop shop for fall decor and entertaining goods, I highly recommend checking out Crate&Barrel. In fact, it is one of my go to stores for fun items to entertain with. Below are just a few things Crate&Barrel have available that I believe will make your home ready for fall entertaining.

BRING IN THE SPIRIT OF FALL WITH DECOR

Im loving the selection of wreaths and artificial florals Crate&Barrel have this year! This is just a few of the many options.

SERVE UP THE PERFECT DRINK

You can’t go wrong with serving wine in the silhouette wine glasses or a refreshing cocktail in the moscow mule mug.

SOMETHING QUICK FOR UNEXPECTED GUEST

When friends are in the area and decide to stop bye, I’m sure you panic and think, “What should I serve!” Along with running around like a mad man trying to tidy up before they arrive. My suggestion is always have items in your pantry to serve a small bruschetta spread. Don’t forget the wine!

Fall is a time of family, love, friends, and comfort. If you are like me, then you are quite the entertainer. Crate&Barrel happens to be one of my favorite stores to grab items for entertaining, but of course there are plenty of other stores who have great options as well.
